Library jar file instead of gradle

Library jar file instead of gradle

Ahmad R.1

Hello,

I don't use gradle for my Java application. Do you have a library jar file that I can use?  You used to have it in jar file for Api V1. Should I use V1 instead or what is your suggestion?

 

Thank you

We don't currently make jars for the Java SDK available separately, but I'll be sure to pass this along as a request to do so.

Thanks for passing it along. I want to share my feedback about V2. I found V1 was extremely easy to follow and integrate for my android app. Not only it had Jar that I just dropped in the folder, but also the documentation/tutorial was very easy to follow to lauthorize users.

I spent hours already trying to determine the right code for V2 and visit the the examples to try to figure out where things are. Is the Java sdk the same as the android sdk. is this example for java j2se or is it for some other java platform (like web app, or applet). Where is the code for authorizing the users where it shows how to generate the token..etc 

Maybe it is just me, but I thought I would share my opinion. I am sure V2 is much better code but it seems to lack the flow and easiness of V1.

 

Other than that, your support is AMAZING! Thank you!

You can now download the Java SDK JAR and and its dependencies directly from the latest release page, as of version 2.0.4:
